I would like to clear some things up regarding Newground's feelings towards Christians. You think they're stupid, you probably don't like them, and you want them to stop preaching. *Please read the entire thing before flaming on me, thank you.
33% of the world is Christian.
That's 2.2 billion people.
of that 33%, only 5% are actually Christian.
Of the 5%, these people go day to day living their lives for god, they live for him and follow the bible.
The latter just says I'm christian, i've read some of the bible, and I go to church every christmas and easter.
These people are generally the stupid ones. Yes, the ones that have a book burning, and the deep south redneck ones you see.
So Radicalone, your calling christians stupid? Sort of, I'm calling a great deal of them stupid and being carnal. Chances are, you've rarely come into contact with the 5% christians I'm talking about. You would have to talk to the people who actually preach if you want to meet them.
heres what the 5% believes: God saved me, and I'm forever indebted to him. he loves me, and I love him back. but I still have to work for god and show him that I love him and thank him for everything hes done. Being a christian can be hard sometimes but its worth it.
here's what the latter believes: God loves me so much! I love god too. and just because I love god i'm a christian and I got to heaven forever! golly, being a christian is fun and easy!
Not true. Not only are they wrong, but they make other christians look bad. They can believe in god, and praise him every christmas and easter, or every sunday. but they aren't true christians. meaning, if it were judgement day, they'd go to hell and be like WTF GOD.
so, i hoped this cleared some things up for you. possibly you had some prejudice because one of the "stupid christians" i talked about tried to preach to you while not even knowing what they were talking about.
